Blokey Valentine...

Hello all!

I made this card for our Stampin Up team challenge - this week it was a colour challenge: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey and Very Vanilla. I wanted to make a valentine card for my hubby and I thought this truck from Loads of Love would work well as we have been watching Top Gear a lot recently! I stamped the truck onto Nouveau Chic DSP (what a surprise that I'm using this paper AGAIN!) and cut out. I then stamped it again on Very Vanilla and paper pieced the truck onto that image. I added some crystal effects to the windows to make them shiny and some silver embossing powder to the door handle and bumpers with a versamarker pen.

This card is called a 'joy fold' card, which is held closed by the greeting circle. I grunged-up the edges of a lot of the panels using a distressing tool and a sponge dauber.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Loads of Love, Love You Much, Spot on wheel
Ink: Basic Grey
Paper: Basic Grey, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Crystal effects, jumbo eyelets, silver EP, versamarker, sponge dauber, cutter kit, scallop circle punch, circle punches, mini hole punch

Thanks for stopping by!
